Kee’s Loaded Kitchen, the bright red cart in the MLK Street Food pod, consistently draws crowds—even from out of state—with huge servings that are a rare case of quantity and quality. This soul food spot is also the place for solving decision fatigue: You pick your main from a daily roster posted on Instagram, and you’ll automatically get all six or so sides, a dessert, and a drink for around $45. Whether you order the exemplary "crackfish"—a.k.a. a slew of peppery, fried catfish filets—or the unbelievably craggy and crispy fried chicken is up to you, just know that Kee’s often sells out, so go early if that gooey mac & KEEs made with Tillamook cheddar is on your day’s bucket list.
